What type of business coach do you want?
If you’re a business owner who thinks you want to work with a business coach, it might be useful to first decide whether what you need is a coach or a consultant.
In other words, if you feel you need someone else’s subject matter expertise to diagnose what your business’ needs are, someone who’ll then prescribe what they think is the best solution as well as perhaps going on to implement their solution for you and then finally leaving you to pick up once they’ve left – then hire a consultant.
On the other hand, if you are of the view that you and your people know your business best, and that the support of a skilled 3rd party professional could bring an even greater focus to your priorities as well as drawing out of your potential, then look for a good business coach – but a genuine one with the right skills and attitude.

"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
"As MP for Mid Sussex I believe passionately in the importance of a vibrant local business community in order to create and sustain fantastic opportunities that enable people to meet their responsibilities, prosper and fulfil their potential. I am committed to collaborating with BHBPA and others to be an effective collective voice for Burgess Hill."
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
